Movieland tv ads?

Yesterday I saw ads watching a movie. I've never had that issue before. It was like every 15 minutes, annoying to say the least. Is Movieland tv adding advertisements now?

Re: Movieland tv ads?

I'm suspicious of Movieland. Are they even properly licensed for all the movies they claim to offer? It has a lot of prestigious movies from major studios streaming for "free". Gone with the Wind, Ten Commandments, Ben-Hur, Jaws, Little Shop of Horrors, etc. Also every single movie is tagged with the year 2020 instead of its actual release year.

Also - Flight of the Navigator from Disney is on there. I know that movie is on Disney Plus, and I find it hard to believe that the Mouse House would simultaneously let that go to a little-known "free" streaming service.

You know, I notice that too. They have quite a bunch of hard-to-get movies and all labeled 2020. I haven't had any issues except that one movie and Tales From the Crypt which doesn't load. And I hope they dont stary adding adds!
